Civil Disobedience's first demo recorded in 1992. Civil D were one of the first great American anarcho-crust bands that had swept the underground of society at the beginning of the 1990's. Hailing from Saginaw, Michigan they moved through the state and Detroit before a line-up change and a move to Minneapolis before calling it quits in 1998. They recorded a defining 7even-inch record "In A Few Hours Of Madness" in 1993. Topic: Civil Disobedience
In an era of an ever increasing militarisation of the Police, aided by the sense that they’re above the law, it’s more important than ever for civilians to watch, record and expose them.

Civil Disobedience is a Toronto punk fanzine.

I believe this is the second issue because it makes reference in an editorial to feedback they have... Topics: Civil Disobedience, Toronto punk, Youth Youth Youth, Fanzine
